The exterior roller shutters are a popular and attractive addition to the window that will not only greatly improve the appearance of your home but also will increase its value and add privacy. The shutters are available in many different materials and colours, but the overall design is the same. The slats could be made from plastic, aluminium, or faux wood are mounted into a strong frame that is then installed on the window.

Additional Security and Privacy for Your Home

Where exterior rolling shutters really stand apart is in the added security they afford, locking when rolled down and blocking direct access to the window, deterring vandals and burglars.

This added security makes the exterior roller shutters an excellent option for homeowners who travel frequently, owners of holiday properties that are not inhabited on regular bases, or homes with windows facing the streets.
